Trusses 90% done

Today was a big day. The sun was out and we were go for putting up the trusses on the second storey. Dave asked his brother to come over and help him. While he isn't a chippy, he is a cabinet maker (he did our kitchen) so he was a massive help and probably both learnt a lot.

So here are some pictures.

First some ply bracing was put up.

 I also did some painting of the lining board to go under the eaves.
We are still hoping that the roof will go on before Easter. Fingers crossed everyone.
